Customer Reviews

excellent album, lay off Boolez

i really enjoyed this album. i have always been a fan of vaughan williams and ms. benedetti give a wonderful reading of the lark ascending with the london philharmonic, but i don't understand why everyone is ganging up on my fellow reviewer. the man is obviously knowledgeable about classical music since he chose to make his apple ID a play on a contemporary French composer's name (Boulez-Boolez). he could just be making the case that he doesn't find vaughan williams or tavener particularly interesting and this is a valid assessment. don't jump on him just because he didn't like the album and you did. at least he's thinking about the music as opposed to thinking of it a great "mood" music.

Italian-Scots violinist Nicola Benedetti followed in a long line of British Isles teenagers hailed as revitalizers of classical music. In advance of making any recordings whatsoever, she was signed to a six-album contract by the Universal label in January 2005 and assigned to its prestigious Deutsche Grammophon imprint, with a paycheck reportedly in excess of one million pounds (over $1,880,000). Benedetti diverged from predecessors like Vanessa-Mae and singer Charlotte Church, however, in that she...
